  1. Snow cone on the roof vent

    Your probably gonna have to get up there and open it up otherwise your gonna have sewer gas backup in your home. Not good. A lot of people in my area use a section of copper pipe and solder a piece crossways on one end. 1" pipe seems to work best. You then have a piece that looks like a "T". Drop it down the vent tube and it helps to keep the vent open. The theory behind it is that the warmer air down in the vent pipe will radiate to the top to help thaw the frost. Its not going to keep it open 100% of the time but it does work better than nothing. Ive also see people paint the vent black to absorb sunlight but no idea if it works. Might want to address the issue soon. Sewer gas can be deadly.
  2. Polaris is shutting down Victory motorcycles?

    Thats what they are doing. Vic sales just never took off like they hoped. Indians are better market competition to harleys and more profitable. They are also far superior in quality than the Victorys. I traded my Vegas and Goldwing for these two and couldn't be happier.
  3. Mille Lacs.....

  4. This state is out of control on it rules, regulations and taxes.
  5. Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on. Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here. Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
  6. Let see your di and si captures

    Looks like a lot of rocks. Could be some fish laying on the bottom. I look for separation between the object and the shadow. After I get more acquainted with my new unit i will try and post some shots
  7. Lawn seed

    I'm going to wait a week or so yet here. Lawn is too soft an wet. I like to rake it in and don't want to rip up whats already there. Go for it if your conditions are right. Keep it wet. My Ground temp was 40 this morning. Whats a good temp for seeding?
  8. Porcelain for bathrooms

    The tile world has changed dramatically over the last 10 years along with how it is installed. Specialty mortars for glass, porcelain, ceramic. Trends are for larger tiles. New underlayments, tools, waterproofing, etc etc........ Your installer needs to be educated on the latest techniques and products. Tile Council of America has a "bible" book on how to install in any situation. As far as working with the products, they are different. Porcelain is hard and cuts hard. Edges can chip easily if not careful when working with it. Tiles can be warped and difficult to level. Ceramic= easier. Different mortars for different tiles. Prep is different for every situation. A lot of new products out to make prep and install easier, faster, and perform better for many years. 5-10% extra is standard. Diagonal layouts require more 15-18% depending on tile size. This includes damaged product during shipping and handling.
  9. Porcelain for bathrooms

    Most "tile" sold today is porcelain. You can still get ceramic but a lot of it is wall tile which means it is soft and should not be installed on floors. Porcelain is a lot harder than ceramic as it is fired at a temp that is right next to glass. Ceramic is made at a lot lower temp and the surface is usually glazed where porcelain is a solid product all the way through and is honed or polished. Manufacturers have shifted away from ceramic because of the raw materials used to make it. As long as its installed correctly it will last as long as you want it. Also think about installing heat cables under your tile especially if you live in a cold climate. Your feet will love you for it!
  10. Prp injections

    Feels a whole lot better as of today. I would say I'm at about 90%. Going in for one more shot in a couple weeks. Recent MRI has shown great progress.
  11. Yamaha vs polk

    Don't own any of those. Have you looked at a Sonos system? If you ever get in to a Best Buy check it out. Amazing.
  12. Ham, Cabbage and Potatoes

    Yum! Crock pots rock!
  13. Is this legal

    Another one . Some guy in the neighborhood had one of these many years ago. I think it was broke down more than it was driven.
  14. Is this legal

    Yea i kinda thought it would be a no go on trails. It looks like a good alternative to a snowmobile. They claim better performance with only two tracks and the skis help keep you up on top of snow. Price is a bit less than buying 4 tracks. Interesting. I don't have them. Thinking about it though. Don't have a sled so this would give me best of both.
  15. Is this legal

    So it boils down to a license thing........? My wife is not a lawyer but she stayed at a Holiday Inn last week so I refer all legal stuff to her.
